I don't know the law in Ohio, but I know in some states the construction zone speed limits are only in effect when workers are present. Might be worth looking in to.

And yeah, those "construction zones" piss me off too.

Used to live there and had two Buckeye flags stolen while flying them at my house, on game day. Middle of the day both times. Bunch of savages in that town.

The thing that bothers me most about the image of the ref and Weber is that, if I recall correctly, that happened after Weber had been hit late out of bounds and no flag was thrown. The ref patted Weber on his way by as if to say sorry, you're not going to get that call.

So the incident that supposedly proves the ref's bias toward Ohio State, occurred after a non-call on a blatant foul committed by _ichigan.

Honestly I think that, fair or not, lots of people see PSU's win over OSU as a fluke. But bottom line, no other team in the country can claim three wins over top ten teams. If anybody has a problem with OSU being in, that's my argument. Ironically, the only ones who even come close are two other B1G teams!

Now if you want to argue PSU over Washington, I'm all for that.

Obviously Ohio State is more deserving and better than Oklahoma. 

HOWEVER - I think he does have a valid point with a team like Washington. The committee today delivered a message that you can schedule the second weakest OOC schedule in the nation and still get in. Oklahoma ran through their conference, and had they played the Huskies' OOC, they would be in the playoff. What incentive is there now for power 5 teams to schedule tough OOC games?

In my opinion, the final four should have been Bama, Clemson, OSU and PSU.

So now instead of seeing Metallica for maybe $50-60, I have to pay like $200 to watch maybe 2 or 3 bands I like and 15 I don't.

Don't mind me, I complain about ROTR swallowing up good tours every year. :) I love hard rock/metal but this just isn't my thing I guess.

Kirkman has said on multiple occasions that the most beloved characters get the most brutal deaths. Glenn was about as beloved as they come, so this was pretty expected. 

That said, I can certainly see how it would be too graphic for a lot of people. Agree that they could have toned it down, but I personally didn't have a problem with it either way.

Big Game Bob was probably planning on lining up in a 3-4 D, giving them a "schematic advantage"...but then Urban dropped that story about the last time they did that in his presser today to let him know they'd be ready for it. Now it's back to the drawing board.

I go to Philly every few months and have tried quite a few cheesesteaks. My favorite is Jim's, and Dalessandro's is a close second. Went to both Geno's and Pat's and both were bad. I mean bad. Geno's was gristly and gross. Pat's was slightly better.

Also one of my favorite spots in the city is the Japanese House. The house is really neat and the garden is beautiful. And of course there is a pond full of koi that you can feed.

Had a similar situation recently - somebody who lived near our neighborhood had a couple of aggressive german shepherds that kept escaping their fence and roaming our neighborhood. They actually attacked a few dogs in our neighborhood as well. Owner refused to fix the fence and refused to pretty much do anything to stop them from coming in to our neighborhood. Police and dog warden were called repeatedly but I'll tell you - they won't do a damn thing other than talk to the owner unless you have proof. When you see them in your yard, get pics and video. A dog owner in our neighborhood got a video of them attacking another dog, and they haven't been in our neighborhood since. But nothing was done about it until that happened.

Great assessment, spot on and pretty much sums up my feelings towards the game as well.

Also, personally I was pretty offended when I lived in AZ and tried to attend the game and the cheapest tickets were still astronomically expensive. I attended plenty of DBacks games (mostly to see other teams/players I liked, but still) but when they got the ASG they made it pretty inaccessible to everyday fans.

I don't watch and will continue to not watch. And I'm even a Cubs fan.

I go every year and usually bring at least one of my kids. It's always a blast. There are usually at least a few recruits that put on a show, there are Buckeye legends present, and you get to hang out in the 'Shoe for free. Definitely go!
